Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
Hello: This isCustomer Welcome to JustAnswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
I am sorry that you still have not received the rest of your backpay. Unfortunately, when a fee petition is pending, Social Security Administration cannot release the rest ofyour backpay to you until the agency has ruled on the Attorney's fee petition and then can determine the remainder of the backpay that you would finally receive. So, the release of your backpay would depend on when the Attorney's fee petition is resolved. Generally, it takes about six months for fee petition to be decided on. So, you may have to wait another month or two before you receive any notice from Social Security Administration regarding your backpay.
I am sorry that I do not have better news for you.
